What’s a summer without a loose blouse, hi-low waterfall skirt and panama hat? I wore this to Sunday brunch with Cynthia at Cluny Bistro in the Distillery and the weather was scorching. After moving from table to table, inside to outside, we finally settled back indoors for a cool air-conditioned and bumblebee-free meal. The day was an endless struggle until we ended up here — the architecture of this building was so beautiful and I wish I captured more photos to show for it. The building seems like it’s from a different time, but fits in so nicely in the King East neighbourhood.

Speaking of time, I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with Christian Paul and style the rose gold/grey watch from their newest Raw Collection. This design draws inspiration from both traditional and contemporary watch designs, but the true beauty lies in it’s simplicity — instead of an arabic dial, the face has a stick dial which keeps it clean and modern. It’s such a timeless piece and I couldn’t be happier that it was handpicked for me by the team based on my personal style and brand aesthetics.
